PHOTO: Vincent Kompany in training ground injury ahead of Liverpool clash

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany appeaed to pick up an injury in training ahead of the Blues' match against Liverpool.

Ahead of Manchester City’s visit to Liverpool in this Sunday’s huge clash at the top of the Premier League, photos have emerged which do not look good for the visitors.

Centre-back Vincent Kompany appears to have picked up an injury in training and required assistance from his teammates and staff as he appeared to struggle to walk.

The Belgian international has been an absolute rock for City since joining the club, with many regarding him as one of the best centre-backs in the world.

It will be a worry for City boss Manuel Pellegrini, as the Chilean will be counting on his star player to stop Liverpool’s dynamic front duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.

Premier League leaders Liverpool go into the clash on a nine-game winning streak and have scored a whopping 90 goals all season.

Brendan Rodgers’ men sit two points clear of Chelsea in second, and four points clear of Manchester City in third – with the Citizens having played two games less.

The Reds know that three more points on Sunday will edge them closer to the Premier League title, and if Kompany is not 100% fit, then their chances of picking up victory will increase further.
